This cold salad is easy to make and great for prepping healthier options for the week's lunches or snacks. I like to add some heat by mixing sriracha or chili garlic paste into the Thai peanut sauce.

  • Toss noodles with sesame oil in a medium bowl. Divide noodles evenly between the 5 containers.

  • Top noodles with edamame, carrot, green onions, and cilantro, dividing them evenly between the 5 containers. Place lids on containers. Pour 1/4 cup peanut sauce into each dressing container. Refrigerate until ready to eat. Mix 1 dressing container with 1 serving of soba salad to serve.

Cook's Note:

Thai peanut sauce can be found in the Asian section of your grocery store. Pre-shelled edamame can be found in the frozen section.

This is a winner! It comes together quite easily and packs a punch of flavor! I used the store-bought matchstick carrots and edamame from the freezer section. The peanut sauce I used was Kikkoman Thai Style peanut sauce. Very tasty! I made some to take to an outdoor concert/picnic and everyone was asking for the recipe. I also added precooked shrimp for a protein boost. I bet it would be good with chicken too. I'm definitely making this one again! Read More

This was so easy and so delicious! I substituted spaghetti for the Soba and did not add edamame as i don't care for it. Still incredibly good! The peanut sauce is the key. We have the Sun Luck brand here and its bit of spice really added something. Will make this again! Read More
